Azure Virtual Machines are available in US South Central and North Central regions
Azure Virtual Machines are an on-demand, scalable computing solution for your business. Create your own custom VM (or choose an image from the gallery), and deploy using Windows or Linux. Virtual machines only exist when you need them, saving money on infrastructure investments and software. The US South Central region is located in Texas, and the North Central region is in Illinois. Both regions will offer our Standard and recently introduced Basic compute tiers, along with Memory Intensive instances. Visit the Azure website for detailed information on service availability and VM pricing for both regions.
